Caro Topete Model FE Steel Stringed Guitar


The Professional steel string FE model is ready for most any musical situation and features a cutaway for access the higher frets.  The soundboard is made from select Engelmann Spruce or Canadian Cedar and the back and sides use highly figured Palo Escrito.  This fine handcrafted guitar implements a number of the Caro & Topete design features, adapted to the steel strings, and, by virtue of its design and quality of materials, has a remarkably balanced tone, with deep bass notes, warm midtones, and crisp chimelike notes in the upper register.  This fine instrument is an ideal balance between price and performance.

Like other Caro & Topete guitars, this instrument has a clean modern appearance sure to stand out on stage and has the powerful characteristic projective voice found in their other guitars.  This exceptional guitar is a pleasure to play, to hear, and to see.
